Keep Cool 7 Days a Week: Frozen Treats Downtown

by Jordan Cutler    July 14, 2022


Hop on the #MargaritaMonday wave and start your week with a delicious frozen marg (with a taco to wash it down, of course) at La Calle for only $4.99 until 7pm.

Texas Bourbon Tuesday

Cool down Texas-style by picking up Dulce Vida’s Texas Bourbon gourmet sorbet from the gift store located in the Hyatt Regency. Handmade locally, this alcohol-infused ice cream is the perfect adult treat for summer.

📍 Hyatt Regency (Store) | 1200 Louisiana

Watermelon Wednesday

Enjoy a mid-week refresher at POST Market. After you grab lunch, get two big scoops of watermelon Italian ice to keep you chill as you head back to work.

Toffee Cake Thursday

Swap your caffeine cup of the day with a few scoops of Flower & Cream’s Toffee Coffee Cake ice cream.  Made with premium ingredients and just a hop, skip and jump away from your office, this is guaranteed to be the perfect summer pick-me-up.

Strawberry Shake Saturday

Shake up your weekend with a burger and a strawberry cheesecake milkshake from this delicious burger spot located in Finn Hall. After you cool down, get one to-go before taking a walk through Downtown’s historic neighborhood.

Sorbet Sunday

Picking up ice cream just got easier with DistrictMarket’s grab-and-go market. Stop by and choose between a selection of dairy-free and vegan Bellefontaine frozen treats.
